v. wade should be the law of the land. what is the republican agenda? to try to overturn roe v. wade and take those rights away from women. we know the majority of americans support a path to citizenship. what is the republican agenda? a fake path to citizenship. point being, it is their policies. i will say quickly that after the 2004 election when democrats got beat and we kind of went back and said what is going on here, we did some real polling, and we found that americans actually agreed with us on our values. >> sure. >> but it was how we were communicating. republicans can't say that americans don't agree with them on their positions. >> just today john boehner released a video for the march for life. let's take a look at it. >> with all that is at stake, it's becoming more and more important for us to share the truth with our young people and to encourage them to lock arms, speak out for life, and help make abortion a relic of the past. let that be one of our most fundamental goals this year. >> didn't the republicans already lose that fight, eugene? how is anything going to
in roe versus wa wade, and a new nbc poll shows that for the first time ever a majority of americans want abortion to remain legal. now, i wonder if this shift in public opinion comes as one of the unintended consequences of the republican party's war on women, which apparently still goes on today. >> it does still go on today and if you look at the state level, i think one can argue that the pro-choice movement is losing the battle in a number of states. at least four states there's only one abortion clinic. there's several states that are passing increasingly restrictive provisions around abortion. so the pro-life movement and republicans have made inroads on the backs of republican state legislatures who are just exp d expanding the restrictions around women getting abortions. so i think on the one hand you do have this national sort of cultural shift in terms of acknowledging that women should have the right to get an abortion, but from what i can tell in terms of at the state level, there are some issues going on where the pro-choice movement is losing the kind of ground game day to
and roe v. wade and this week we have people in our tea party caucus introducing bills like this. and, you know, i don't think they ever thought there would be this big firestorm of controversy behind it. but the same things we're seeing in virginia are what are happening in states like this. new mexico is traditionally a pretty progressive community. we have moved forward on protecting women's rights for years. but there are -- there's a growing caucus of these tea party and crazy conservatives on the right who are opposed to that kind of progress and they are doing what they can with some of these sleeper bills they hope nobody would notice. >> pat, i want to play what jean moynihan president of march for life said this morning on the daily rundown about the current abortion movement. take a listen. >> if you went to the march today you'd see a number of young, shining energetic faces. this isn't an extreme radical issue. this is the new normal. >> so this is the new normal. so explain to us the new normal for a state legislature, you know, state legislator in new mexico is to actually h
deal with that? >> hal: you know, before roe v. wade and before it was a protected right in this country a lot of women handled this quite frankly like patrick swayze's dance partner in dirty dancing. through a shady doctor or no doctor at all. >> caller: but they did it on the kitchen table. >> hal: exactly. or well people who could pretend they didn't have to do these kind of things would send their daughter to visit a cousin and she would come back without the child anymore. >> caller: there's one clinic in each of these four states and some women have to drive five hours. they have to wait 72 hours and drive back. it is disgusting. >> hal: absolutely. >> caller: i love you guys. >> love you too, dana. thanks for coming on saturday. >> hal: you know, that's been the drip, drip of legislaturewise across this country. and unfortunately, we were talking a lot about this about the fact that the focal point was on the president because of the inauguration and this idea that you know, he's our primary representative. i was not comfortable -- i'm never using the word leader b
. the prolifes down in d.c. every year and he made a public service announcement roe v. wade. it is scary this is where we are. >> john: it is. the one question i would like to see these guys ask, i've said it before on the show. i have no problem if you're opposed to abortion for moral reasons or religious reasons even though jesus never mentioned abortion but was clearly against the death penalty, even if i were against it and you want to use the legislative process to protect an unborn, it is a free country. you should take full advantage of it. if you want to ignore them as soon as you're born. you're a horrible person. you have a right to do that. however, i want to see one of the so-called journalists say to the paul ryans of the world the mitt romneys of the world ask them one question. once you've achieved your dream america and abortion is outlawed, who deserves longer jailstentions, the women who terminate pregnancies or the doctors who perform them because it went on for a long time before roe v. wade. women with money could always terminate pregnancies. abortion has always bee
demonstrators are gathered. thousands turned out to mark the 40th anniversary of the roe versus wade. the supreme court decision that legalized abortion. former presidential candidate rick santorum among the speakers calling for overturning the zwigs. >>> republican senator chambliss says he will not seek re-election next year. the head of the democratic senatorial campaign committee said democrats will try to win back that seat saying georgia is one of the best pickup opportunity in the next election. >>> time now for the "gut check." we told you about the republican plan to change the way that the u.s. presidents are elected. republicans in pennsylvania, michigan, ohio and virginia want to do away with the current winner takes all approach in favor of awarding votes by congressional districts, better positions the gop to retake the white house come 2016. our first read team writes, quote, the proposed changes would speed up to efforts to have the popular vote and not the electoral college decide presidential contests because many would see that as a fairer system. what does your gu
wade decision. charlie joins us from new york, on the republican line. caller: good morning. one morning, the first sergeant announced there were eliminations from the pt test. women could not do it. if you cannot pass your pt test, you cannot be promoted. do not give me the lie that standards are not going to be lowered. they will be. the problem is, we no longer have generals like george patton, matthew ridgway, curtis lemay, and douglas macarthur. that is the problem. host:, for the call, charlie. this is a headline based on the report looking at the issue of sexual harassment in the military and the focus of airforce leaders focusing on culture -- yesterday, general dempsey was asked about that culture of seco -- sexual harassment in the military. this is a portion of what he had to say. >> i believe it is because we have had separate classes of military personnel, at some level. it is far more complicated than that. when you had one part of the population that is designated as warriors, and another part that is designated as something else, i think that disparity begins to e

that the estimates are 50 to 55 million unborn americans have been aborted since roe v. wade was decided. it is true of those who are at the end of their live who is will be treated under obamacare. i think it can lead to a disrespect for life more broadly. i think we need to do everything to infiltrate the respect for life which, frankly has been growing to the surprise of many. public opinion is moving toward the pro life direction in recent years. i think hopefully it will continue to move in that direction. i don't think it is a alba tross around our necks. if you look in swing districts where republicans lost. they did not lose because they were pro life. they lost because, you know, votes on taxes or spending or regulations or so forth. it is very rare to find republican politician who is have lost because they are pro life, i think. >> let's glance in on gay marriage. people say like us, you have to give up your view of marriage if you want to win another election. do you think they have a point? >> i don't think they do. i'm a supporter of traditional marriage. that is not disrespect for gay
